How are you? Transients ischemic attack (TIA), according to the American Heart Association, is a "warning stroke" or "mini-stroke" that produces stroke-like symptoms but with no lasting damage or injury to the brain. TIAs are important in predicting if a stroke will occur rather than when one will happen. In about half the cases, the stroke occurs within one year of the TIA. This condition happens when a blood clot temporarily clogs an artery, and part of the brain does not get the blood it needs. The symptoms occur rapidly and last a relatively short time including sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body; sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding; sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination; or sudden, severe headache with no known cause. Differential for this condition include migraine headache. Further testing like ECG may be done especially if you have co-morbid conditions like hypertension or heart diseases. Preventive medications like anti-coagulant or anti-platelet may also be started. Talk to your doctor about this. Take care and do keep us posted.
